Advanced Analysis → Comparison Tool

The External Assessment Comparison Tool allows teachers to compare students’ results between two assessments (the initial assessment and the latest assessment). When using this tool in a ‘class’ context, the students in the specified class will show as blue dots.

Each student in the group is indicated by a dot with the vertical axis showing the latest assessment result and the horizontal axis showing the initial assessment result. The black line indicates the trend between the two assessments for the cohort. The students in the specified class are indicated by blue dots.
